Davis County administers several grant programs which are funded by federal or state funds. They have different objectives and benefit different communities or residents of the County. Listed below are the grant programs with summaries of their objectives, and links to fuller descriptions and application information. Both grant programs use an annual competitive application process.
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
The CDBG grant was established as a "bricks and mortar" grant to help communities improve housing, public facilities and infrastructure for the benefit of low- and moderate-income persons, prevent or eliminate slum or blight, or meet urgent conditions that pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community. It comes directly to the County for County-prioritized programs and projects. A portion of the grant can be used for social service type programs. Eligible applicants include non-profit organizations, faith-based organizations, government agencies, or community councils. All cities in the County may participate and benefit from the County CDBG program, except Clearfield, Fruit Heights, Layton and South Weber. No match is required.
Social Services Block Grant (SSBG)
The SSBG grant provides funds for social service type programs that promote self-sufficiency, preserve and rehabilitate families, assist home-bound residents and other services. It is provided to the State which then passes a portion of those funds to the County. Eligible applicants include non-profit organizations, faith-based organizations, or government agencies. Residents living in all cities in the County may benefit from this program. A 25% match is required, which may be met through in-kind services or cash.
